Thanks everyone - it means a lot to have all of the great comments from everyone - especially given our challenging weekend!

Great - I hope you got a wave back - everyone seemed to be staring at us - can't think why!

Hmmm,

Tis a bit tight down there!

What are your thoughts on interceptors for very high speed use - tried any?

Haven't tried any or know of anyone that has - in theory it wouldn't need much at all to produce results - it would depend on the drag figures compared to regular tabs that would be the key.

Mr Tapping was on form as usual:



Rather like this one - the boat in the background is the first of the BananaShark layup Phantom 19's we made for Graham Lawton with which he won the 2010 OCR National Championships - hope we can be as successful in the new boat!



It was a shame Chris Strickland broke down - it was interesting to see how he was doing compared to us for a while ......

Why on earth do you need a stepped hull, complete waste of time - it is never in the water

Shouldn't you have soft bits underneath for when it lands - then it would be a rib
